This Man Was In Desperate Need Of A Kidney, But Never Let That Slow Him Down.

A few years ago, Kevin Campbell was diagnosed with a kidney disease which left him with only 4% use of the vital organs. The slow, progressive disease required him to have extensive, and painful, dialysis sessions.

But what he really needed was a kidney. Despite being placed on a long waiting list, the Canada-native summoned incredible strength to not only tell his story but achieve something perfectly healthy people struggle with.

Kevin spent four days a week hooked up to a dialysis machine filtering his blood. The painful process is physically and emotionally draining.

But that didn't stop him from completing the grueling Tough Mudder obstacle event.

His daughter cheered him on from the sidelines as he made his way through the 12-mile military style challenges.

Even after collapsing at one point, he made it to the finish line to become the first person on dialysis to complete the event.

...and then immediately returned to the hospital for more dialysis.

The excruciating pain never gets any easier.

A year later with his daughter, Kevin was still on a waiting list along with over 4,500 Canadians hoping for a transplant.

He was forced to move away from his daughter in order to be closer to the hospital for his treatment.

And then this man changed everything: Darin Grunberg became a hero after reading about Kevin on social media and flying across the country to donate his kidney.

Darrin and Kevin had never met before the selfless act of kindness that gave him back his life.

Following the surgery, he was able to travel and reunite with his daughter for an emotional surprise visit.

Six months later, Kevin met up with Darin again and gave the life saving man a big hug.

This video captures the emotional journey he underwent while participating in the Tough Mudder event:

Canada has one of the lowest ranking donation rates for a developing country, each year having an average of only 13 donors per one million people. Because I Can hopes to shed light on this and bring help to those who desperately need it.
